The impeccable, gleaming, white linoleum floor reflects the glow of endless banks of white florescent light receding into the distance. A garble of murmuring voices muttering endless chatter to one another drowns in the quiet, gentle cacophony of water falling in a fountain.

Every 30 yards or so, the portal to a new realm, each defined by its own aesthetic rules, drifts past the eye. A planter overflowing with ferns invokes the latent wild side lurking beneath the surface in the unflinchingly commercial space of the mall: the primal desire to find reasonable prices on just, like, normal pants. This is not just any shameless exploitation of our most base instincts to grease the gears of the global economy: this is shopping.

And today, Donuts will be releasing all domains formerly prohibited due to name collision concerns in the Shopping category. They will be rolled out like a cart full of groceries according to an EAP-style schedule.

The EAP prices (at A rates, not including any applicable tax) will vary by day, and will be approximately as follows:

    Day 1 (July 22, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$12,667
    Day 2 (July 23, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$4,222
    Day 3 (July 24, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$1,778
    Day 4 (July 25, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$945
    Days 5-7 (July 26-28, 2015 at 16:00 UTC): +$189

Nine more new gTLDs are entering the Golive phase.

Register a domain under one of these TLDs?:

It was like any other morning at Gandi. We were sitting here, unsuspectedly, taking in another Sunrise Tuesday with its batch of new gTLDs, and reflecting on the news article to be written and posted. It would be hard to be witty about such a real estate-centric group: We had .PROPERTIES and .CONDOS, accompanied by the très français .MAISON as well as .IMMOBILIEN in the language of Goethe. The Spanish .TIENDA would provide a new online home for boutiques, but little opportunity for wordplay.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, .NINJA. Bam.

All of these extensions are available in Sunrise as of today, which means you have to have a trademark with TMCH in order to register them. If you don't, you can pre-register right now for the upcoming Landrush or GoLive phases and we'll submit your order at the earliest possible moment.

The list of newcomers, along with their respective prices in Sunrise / Landrush / GoLive/General Availability, follows:

  • .CONDOS:       $132.68 / $152.67 / (4 June) $52.68
  • .IMMOBILIEN$134.68  / $154.67 / (28 May) $32.49
  • .MAISON:         $132.68 / $152.67 / (4 June) $52.68
  • .NINJA:             $118.68 / $133.68 / (28 May) $19.61
  • .PROPERTIES: $119.68 / $139.68 / (4 June) $32.49
